About Stevens ASBPA

The Stevens Institute of Technology chapter of the American Shore and Beach Preservation Association (ASBPA) is the first student chapter of ASBPA established at a university.  The Stevens chapter was chartered in October 2011 at the ASBPA National Coastal Conference in New Orleans, LA.


Being involved in professional organizations surrounding your field is very important. Professional organizations such as ASBPA provide students a way to meet other engineers and scientists in the ocean and coastal community, attend national conferences to learn about the most recent advances in your field and network with leading professionals, and receive journals and newsletters showcasing recent coastal projects and developments in research.


The student chapter of ASBPA is open to all undergraduate and graduate students.  In addition to general body meetings, the student chapter offers field trips to local New Jersey beaches to discuss coastal projects, education and outreach activities including volunteering at Ocean Fun Days, and volunteers for beach sweeps with Clean Ocean Action.  Feel free to email the student chapter president (Andrew Rella - if you have any questions about membership or events.
